Fish Scales

April 5, 2012
So many types
Of fish scales

There is my friend
A true beauty
Layers of color form an intricate sheath
Designed to dazzle
A grandeur of color
The beacon that attracts all eyes

Then there is me
A real nightmare
Hideous shades twist together
An absence of appeal
The monstrosity no one can look at

I scuttle drearily alongside
Watching the beautiful one talk
The only color now
Is inside me
You can look at my scales now.
There is nothing else to look at.
